Feel better on the inside

I partner with you in both healing and growth to help you feel like, well, you again.

How I can help

Together, we can find your inner compassion, courage, calm, clarity, creativity, and connectedness, without compromising the things that make you...you. Seeking help can feel vulnerable, and my approach is to move at your pace.

Individual Therapy

Find your center and learn to put your emotions in their rightful place. I use a variety of therapies with my main focus using a therapy called Internal Family Systems (IFS). It can transform self-relationships, foster self-love, soothe anxious inner states, and promote inner peace.

Medication Management

Know what you're taking and why you're taking it. Every time. I'll guide you in medication decisions with consideration of the risks and benefits. I educate, you decide.

ADHD, Anxiety & Panic Disorders, Bipolar, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, PTSD—I can help.

Couples Therapy

For couples, I'll use a type of therapy called Intimacy From the Inside Out. I'll teach you to foster compassion for inner wounds, learn from past healing, and gain present control within your relationship. Learn to have boundaries that help you love yourself and your partner at the same time.

I'm Amy Palmer

I am a Tennessee native who loves spending time with family and friends in the mountains, on the lake, or relaxing at home.
I feel there is a clear relationship between physical and mental health. Awareness is the first step to help us focus attention on what is going on for us internally and externally. I love helping people become more present to the “right now.”

Don’t just take my word for it

Hear from some of my amazing clients who have experienced growth and healing
"Amy is a warm and safe presence. She is skilled at helping to process hard and deep things with gentleness and insight. I always looked forward to our time together and left feeling like I had genuine support as well as good tools to grow."
"I started working with Amy almost a year ago when I knew I needed to seek help for my anxiety and depression. I was unfamiliar with with IFS therapy at the time but I really believe it has given me a vocabulary and a process to work through difficult emotions."
"Working with Amy over the last 6 months has been a life changing experience. She has consistently held space for me during our IFS sessions while introducing me to many different parts of myself. Her guidance has deepened my relationships with family and friends but most importantly, my relationship with Self."
